Today I moved sites from Leasburg Dam to Caballo state park. After setting up camp, I walked with the dogs to make the payment at the self pay station. On the way back, Hera informed me that she couldn't walk. I thought that she must have a goat head sticker in her foot. She held her hind foot up in the air, and when I tried to look at it, she screeched and pulled as if it was painful. I tried again to look, and to feel it but she was uncooperative. After getting us back into the motorhome, I tried again. She just kept messing with it herself, but wouldn't allow me to really look at it.
I have to lick and chew!
I decided to give her a couple baby aspirin, mixed in tuna, and after a while she settled down.
I'm calming down a bit!
In retrospect, I believe that she got bit by an ant. The ants here are HUGE! I'm thinking that they are biters as well. My past experience with biting ants is that they hurt a lot and itch terribly!
